The Diamond League will conclude on September 17, 2023, with the final taking place in Hayward Stadium, Eugene, Oregon (United States).

Highlights from the Monaco Diamond League 2023

India’s Praveen Chithravel finished sixth in the men’s triple jump event at the Monaco Diamond League 2023.

The 20-year-old produced a strong front-running performance, pulling clear of compatriot Abraham Kibiwot to win in 8:04.19 and take more than 14 seconds off his personal best.

However, Monaco’s night will be to the sprinters. There were a plethora of records broken at the Monaco meet. Faith Kipyegon broke her third world record of the year to steal the show at Monaco.
